Makeup Recreations from the Past - Historically Accurate & Fantastic

Hello everyone! I came across this series on youtube not long ago and I had to share it. In the series a youtuber by the name of Zabrina recreates makeup and hair styles from various periods of time.

What sets her videos apart from many others out there is the time she takes to research everything. She strives to create looks that are authentic to the time from which they became popular. A lot of people who have done recreations of historical styles like this usually wind up modifying the look to fit in better with modern beauty ideals. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, but it's nice to see something more historically accurate too.

Her looks always come out beautiful and as an added bonus we get to learn a bit about the history of cosmetics along the way.

Seriously, the makeup and history loving nerd in me flips over this stuff, it's fantastic.
